Justin Timberlake clears the air following 'Saturday Night Live' dig, 'I absolutely love Kanye'

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Justin Timberlake had viewers laughing Saturday night when he hosted Saturday Night Live and had some who noticed gasping with his subtle dig at Kanye West during “Suit & Tie.” But Timberlake notes that he has nothing but love for the rapper, despite getting “all dramatic.”

Timberlake’s retaliation came just weeks after West went on a rant slamming the singer/actors hit “Suit & Tie” when he stated, "I got love for Hov, but I ain't f--kin' with that 'Suit & Tie.'"

The 32-year-old singer sat down with Jimmy Fallon Monday evening where he talked about his highly successful hosting duties in addition to his subtle jab at West, Us Weekly reports.

Fallon asked, “For Saturday Night Live, it felt like to me you changed one of the lyrics in 'Suit & Tie.’”

Timberlake replied with a smile on his face, "Did it seem that way? I don't remember that . . . Did I change a line? It is live. You know, really, everyone, keep calm."

"Keep calm, and Kanye on," Fallon quipped

Clearing the air, Timberlake notes, "Let me just, for the record, I absolutely love Kanye. So there's that. We love Kanye, right?"
